There are many people who ADORE receiving hand-knit or crochet items; but there are just as many who have no appreciation whatever of how much love, work, and time goes into a hand-made item. Share a story of a hand-made gift you gave to someone and how it worked out – good, bad, or ugly!
The first story that came to mind when I read the question is … The first sweater I ever knit was about 2-3 months after I started knitting. I decided to knit a raglan cardigan for my niece. I had the hardest time with the 1×1 rib on the bottom, I must have frogged it 10 times before I got it right. But that is an entirely different story, for another day. I was SO nervous about giving a hand-knit gift not to mention the FIRST sweater I ever made. In the end it all turned out okay, my SIL loved the sweater and it looked so cute on my niece.
I have decided to knit the cutie patootie sweater for my new niece. I was going to knit the Little Angel Top but the yarn I wanted to use never made the gauge needed …
I just have to decide what to use for a contrasting color … I was thinking either yellow, white, or a variegated purple.
|What Your Peanut Butter And Jelly Sandwich Means|
Your eating style is reserved. You are a bit of a fussy eater, and you have very specific ways you like your food prepared.You don’t really have a sweet tooth. If you go for dessert, you tend to go for something light.
Your taste in food tends to be quite eclectic and wide. You are an adventurous eater, and you like many types of cuisines.
You are probably a fairly normal, upper middle class person. You don’t rock the boat too often.
You are a tough person who isn’t afraid to live life fully. There isn’t a lot that scares you.
You are laid back and extremely easygoing. You never make a fuss, and you try to enjoy every moment.
When you’re working on yours, what do you call them? Also, is there a difference between a dishrag and a dishcloth? How bout a facecloth? Are they all really the same thing?
I have always called them “rags” probably because my mother and grandmother called them “rags”. I call them cloths when I am knitting them. I do think there is a difference between dishcloths and facecloths. Facecloths to me should be softer than dishcloths; and dishcloths should be sturdier than a facecloth simply because of there intended use.
So call it a rag or a cloth, it is all the same to me.
